38-year-old Chandra Majors was found dead inside a home on Pierpont Street. The house caught fire around 2:30 early Sunday morning.
She was a mother of seven.
Chandra Majors' daughters say their mom's life ended too soon.
"She was a good person that loved to laugh. Crack jokes. She was so goofy. She was more like a best friend. My mom was a wonderful woman. I love her and I truly am going to miss her and she will live through all of us," said Alexis Majors.
Majors was home alone when the fire broke out Sunday morning. When crews went inside, they found the mother dead on the second floor. Majors lived with four of her younger children who were under the age of 16. They were not there at the time of the fire.
"It feels like I am living a nightmare. It doesn't seem real. I would never expect my mom to go like that. Never," said Majors.
Neighbors say, on Saturday afternoon, just hours before the fire, a fight broke out between Majors and her boyfriend. Neighbors had to call 911.
"He got mad because another neighbor saw them fighting and the guy neighbor fought him, so he got mad," said Tonquese Lopez, Majors' daughter.
Majors' daughters say now all the can do is wait to hear from investigators as they remember their mom who was one of a kind.
"Funny, goofy, she had a laid back personality. She was outgoing. She was so friendly. She was very friendly, but she had a little bad side to her too. She had a little attitude like oh don't go there," said Lopez.
Investigators say the cause of the fire remains under investigation. They have not called it arson. Experts encourage women who may be in domestic violence situations to seek help. Here locally, services are offered through Alternatives For Battered Women and Safe Journey. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
